Peake, Studies 52.4 (Dec. 2008) and Intelligencer 17.1 (Winter-Spring 2009), comments that this book "deals head-on" with what the author "sees as the new terrorism of the 21st century and what must be done to keep it from succeeding. It is not light reading, but it is very much worth the effort."

Bodansky, Yossef. Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America. Rosewood, CA: Forum, 1999. New York: Forum, 2001. [pb]

Clark comment: The author is Director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare. According to Powers, NYRB, 17 Jan. 2002, Bodansky "reports in great detail the outward facts of bin Laden's progress from a builder of hospitals and military barracks in Afghanistan to the world's most wanted terrorist." Nevertheless, we learn "little about bin Laden's character, the people who shaped his thinking, how he came to embrace terrorism and build links with extreme Islamicist groups throughout the world." Chapman, IJI&C 15.4, finds this work "immensely thought-provoking" and "illuminating."

"For border security, technology is the future, and the future is now." The defining factors for the types of technologies most in demand for border security "include interoperability, off-the-shelf availability, adaptability, force-multiplier capability, and legislative requirements."

Bodnar, John W. Warning Analysis for the Information Age: Rethinking the Intelligence Process. Washington, DC: Joint Military Intelligence College, 2003.

According to Peake, Studies 51.2 (2007), the author's "central theme is that in today's complex, multipolar world, we require multidimensional analysis (MDA) applied by data-mining computer programs that, he seems to suggest, have yet to be written.... Few will disagree with Dr. Bodnar's premises concerning analysis in the Web-based world[;] some may even argue that we are not so far from reaching the goal" as he seems to suggest.

It is difficult to verify all the exploits displayed in this book. However, David Del Giudice [CAPT/USN (Ret.)], "Setting the Record Straight," U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings, 137, no. 2 (Feb. 2011): 60-64, vehemently rejects Boehm's claims to having created the SEALs and been the commanding officer of the first SEAL team. He says: "These claims are demonstrably false," and then provides a brief history of the establishment of the SEALs.
